Schoneman says, “The Courthouse doors will be locked until September 29th and the Treasurer’s office will serve people by appointment only. Because of social distancing health needs we are limited to two people in the Tax/Motor Vehicle office and one to two people in the Driver’s License Station. At this time facemasks are not required for entry but could change in the future. We are asking people to pay taxes and motor vehicle renewals through our online website, mail, or drop box, so we can save the in-office visits for our transactions that require face-to-face visits.

The website for Butler County is www.butlercoiowa.org. There are links to the Iowa Treasurers website, www.IowaTreasurers.org, for making property tax and motor vehicle renewal payments. There are also links on the county website in the treasurer tab for motor vehicle forms and to the Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT). The IDOT offers many driver’s license services online if eligible at https://iowadot.gov/mvd/driverslicense/service-selector.”
